What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Not So "Common" Now!

Common sense. Such a dictator, am I right?

Well, some bakers aren't going to take it anymore! Some bakers are like, "DOWN WITH COMMON SENSE! WE REFUSE TO BE COMMON *OR* SENSICAL!"

Except they yell it in their bathrooms, because they don't know any better.


Then they go to work and make cakes like this:

Which go over like a lead balloon.


Common sense says the odds of a couple celebrating the exact same date of birth - and providing a wedding photo for the cake - is FAR less likely than their celebrating a wedding anniversary.

So naturally:



Common sense also demands that you cut an edible image so all the words are visible.



And finally, and ironically the most common:

Rebecca in Red Frosting is feeling so left out right now.

So I guess she knows how Common Sense feels.


Happy Common Sense Day to Madeline S., Lori, Robin K., & Mary Lou, who suspect it's rapidly becoming more of an exclusive club.

International Failure Day Gets CAKE

Barb E. asked for Navy icing:

She got it.


Cindy M. just wanted the initial "G" for her 14-year-old daughter - but I guess that was TOO simple?


Jen and Pete asked the bakery to include paper plates and plastic silverware.


Pauline ordered a cake that said, "I hate you for leaving!"

...but sure, that's close enough.


Holli T. wanted the number 10 written as a number: "you know, with double digits."

Part of me hopes Alexis gets a great nickname outta this.



Charli C. made the mistake of telling her bakery who the cake was for:



And finally, Jared C. asked for rainbow sprinkles.

How do you mess up rainbow sprinkles?

Oh, like this:

Happy International Day For Failure, everybody!


Thanks to Barb E., Cindy M., Jen & Pete, Pauline R., Holli T., Charli C., & Jared C. for the head bangers.
